British Have S Training Bo Correspondent Tells of Many Varieties of 3ombs Seen in British Training School in France. British Headquarters, France, Aug. C?(Associated Press Corrosponu ence.)?It was at a bombing school on a French farm where chosen soldiers brought back from the tronchos were 'being trained in the use of the anar chist's weapon which has now become as respectable as the rillc. Special ism develops as the war goes on. Ther0 are no M. 13. degrees for Mas ter Bombers yet; but that may come, any day. I Present was the chief instructor, a young Scotch subaltern with blue eyes, a pleasant smile and a Cock of . the North spirit. He might lia ve been ! twenty years old. though he did not [look it. On his breast was t':e pur- ? pie and white rlbon of the new order ? of the Military Cross which you got for doing something in this war which would have won you a V?e?uria Cross ' In one of the little vars. | Also present wj? the assistant in structor, a sergeant of regulars?and very much of a regular?who had three ribbons which ho had won in [ revioux campaigns. He too had blue ejes, bland blue eyes. These two un derstood each other. "If you don't drop It, why H'b all ; right," said the Sergeant. "Of course, | if you do . . . " We did not drop it. 'And when you throw it, Bir, you ? must look out and not lilt the man be hind anil knock the bomb out of your hand. That iban happened before now to an absent minded fellow when you throw bombs." "They cay that you sometimes pick up the Gorman bombs and chuck them back before they explode, It was suggested. "Yea, sir, I've read thin&rf like that | in some of the accounts of the report ers who write from 'Somewhere in France." You don't happen to know wfhere that is,' sir? All I can say is that if you are going to do it you Ktuw be quick about It. I shouldn't advise any delaying your decision, sar, or porhans when you reach down to pick it up neither your hand nor tbo bomb would be there. They'd have gone off together, sir." "Have you ever been hurt In your handling of bombs?" ono asked. Sur prise in the bland, blue eyce. "Oh, no, sir! Bombs are well be haved if you treat them right. It's all In bs'.ng thoughtful and considerate of them! Meanwhile he was jerking at some kind of a patent fuse set in a shell .a . high explosive. "This ie a poor kind. sir. It's been discarded, but I thought that you might like to see it. Never did like it! Always making trouble!" More distance between the audience and the performer. "Now I've got It, sir?get down, sir!" The audience carried out instruc tions to the letter as army regula tions require. We got behind the pro tection of one of the practice trench traverses. He threw the discard be yond another wall of earth. There was a sharp report, a burst of smoke and some fragments of earth wore tossed into the air. In a small affair of two hundred yards of trench the other day it was estimated that the British and Ger mans together threw about five thou sand bombs in this fashion. It was enough to sadden any Minister, of Munitions. However, the British kept the trench. ' Do the men like to become bomb ers?" one asked the subaltern. "I should say so. It puts them up in front. It gives them a chance to throw something?and they don't get much cricket 10 France, you see. We had a pupil here last week who broke the throwing record for distance. He was pleased as punch with himself. A first class bombing detachment has a lot of pride of corps." To bomb has become ss common a verb with the army as to bayonot. "We bombarded them out!" means a section of trench taken. As you know a trench is dug and built with sand bags in z'.g^ag traverses. In follow* ing the course of a trench ft is as if you followed the sides of the squares of a checker board up and down and across on the same tier of squares. The square Itself is a bank of earth with the cut on either side and in front.of it. When a bombing partv bombs the? way into the pos session of a section of German trench therp are Germans under covere of the traverses on either side of them. The German Is waiting around the corner to shoot the first British head that shown Itfolf. "It's important that you and not the Boches chuck the bombs over first,** explained the subaltern. "Also that you get them intrr their traverse or they may be as troublesome to yon as to the enemy.** With the bombs bursting in their faces the Germans who are not put out of action are blinded and stunned. In the moment when they are thus off guard the aggressors leap around the corner. "And .then?* . '?Stick 'em. sir!" said the matter of-fact sergeant. "Yes. the cold steel is best. And do It first. As Mr. Mac P* *rson skid, its very important to df It flrst.-* It has been found that something short is bandy for this kind of work. In such cramped quarters?a ditch six feet deep'and from two to three feet broad?the rifle is an awkward length to permit of prompt and skil ful use of the bayonet. "Yob, sir you can mix it un better with som?tate? handy, sir?to think tita British soldiers would como to Schools For mb Throwers fighting like assassini., sur." eniil the Sergeant. "luu must bo s\ y sdii occas ions, il'? no time fur wool gather ing. " Not smile fron? hint or the subal tern all the time. They wore the klii? you would like to have siting in a t.giit corner whether sou had 10 l.ght with knives or lists or Hoventccn-luch howitzers. The sergeant took us i >t'> :ae store house whore he kepi .iis supply of horn be. "What if a Gorman Bhell should strike your storehouse?" it was sug gested. "Thon, ? , I expect that most of tile bombs would bo exploded. Uombs are very peculiar lu their habits. Wliat do you think, sir?" It was no trouble to show slock, as the clerks at the stures sny. lio brought forth all the different kinds of bombs which British ingenuity has invented?but, no, not all invented. These would mount into thousands. Every British Inventor who know: anything about explosives has trlc? his hand at a new kind of bomb. Ono means all the kinds which the Uritish war office bus considered worth a practical test. There wore yellow and green and blu.-- and black and striped bombs, egg-shaped, barrelshaped, conical and concave bombs: bombs that were ex ploded by pulling a string or press ing a button?all tlie.se to bo thrown by hand, without mentioning the gre nades and other bigger varieties which were thrown by mechaniral means which would have ms.'e a Chi nese warrior of Confucius' lime or a I'oman legionary feel at homo. "This was the EiT.t born." the sub altern explained?"tie first thing we could lay our bands on when the cloee quarters trench warfare began." It was out of data, now, as grand father's smoothbore?the tin tin pot bomb which both side.-, used early In the winter. A wick was attached to the high explosive wrapped in cloth and ' tuck in an ordinary army Jam can. "Quite home-made, as you see, sir," remarked the Sergeant, "t'eed to ilx them up ourselves ih the trenches in odd hours?saved .burying your re fuse Jam tins according to medical corps direction?you threw them at the Bouches. Have to use a match to liglit It?very old fashioned, sir. I wonder If that old fuse has got damp. No, it's going all right"?and ho threw tho Jam pot which made a good explosion. "But here Is the best; we're discard ing the others," he went on as he pick ed up another bomb. It was a pleasure to throw this crowning achievement of tho experi ments. It fitted your hand nicely; it threw easily; it did the business; it was foolproof against a man in lovf> or war posti. "We saw as soon as this style came out," eaid the Sergeant, "that it was bound to be popular. Everybody asks for It." DUTCH INVENT NEW TRENCH For Use in Low Marshy Sections of Country?Can Be Flooded. The Hague, July 31.?(Associated Press Correspondence.)?Tho war de partment of tho Netherlands has de veloped a new sort of trench for use in the low and marshy party of the country where. In case of an Invasion, the chief battles might be expected. Fighting along th0 Yser has taught the strength of a water defense above nil others. For this purpose, as .is well knows, the so-called "waterllne" has been brought into readiness. But a great deal of fighting might take place upon the endless tracts of mead ows which lle all nround the capital of the Kingdom. The trenches which will here bo constructed will be ar ranged in such a way that at a mo ment's notice they can be turned into flooded ditches. In the warfare in France and Rus sia a conquered trench means an ad ded strength for the enemies, who im mediately turn the trench into a fort ress of their own. The Dutch trench es, when it is necessary to abandon them, will almost automatically be come a deep flooded ditch which will be no use to any one and will merely form another obstacle on the way for ward.

Tokio, July 30. (Associated Port Correspondence) The Sunrcmo Court of Japan has ruled that, as restili of warbotwern Japan an.1 Germany the international convcttlo:- lor the protection of Ind usi rial property is suspended in its operation. Tho prac tical effect of the decision is that trade-mark rights, patent rights und other Industrial designs held by Ger man subjects or German companies previous to tho opening of tiie war are to be considered as extinguished or suspended in their effect for the time being. The general question at Issue was brought before the courts by a Ja; a a ose demand for Judgment declaring In valid the registration of a trade mark pending between Japaneso company and the local managers and represen tatives of an industrial company at Hanover, Germany. The patent office of Japar decided In favor of tho Germans, but the high court has quashed that ruling. TiSe court pointed out that the con vent'on for tho protection of indus trial property which was made In 1918 cannot be snid to become abso lutely and permanently Inoperative because of the outbreak of hostilities between Japan and Germany. It not ed that several other powers aro part ies to this convention. Hnwovor, as! botween Japan and Germany It was propor to think the convention Is bub- i ponded In Its op?ration from thP time when war broke OOl between thein un til such time as peace shall have boon restord. Tho court found no doubt whatso ever that the treaty wae concluded only on the premise of the existence of relations of peacoful intercourse between the contracting parties. The court says: " couree, even tho people of a hostile power should not be unreasonably treated. On the contrary, as already declared by the Japanese government they should be treated and protected according to the dictates of Justice anil humanity. At the same time there Ib no reason whatever why thoy should be more favorably treated and more consider ately treated than a friendly nation not party to tho convention." The judgment of the supreme court Is lnlerpreted as permitting tho public to mako a freo use of trade-marks and patent rights regardless of any rights held by German subjects or German companies previous to the war. WHAT IS CABK-EOIB WORTH Income from Bonds Alone Amounts to $210,000,000. Philadelphia Ledger. When rumors were flashed over the land again ono day recent that An drew Carnegia was detd the quory on everybody's lips was: "How much money did he leave?" Mr. Carnegie himself made tho im portant remark that It is a crime to die rich?being ono crime which most of us will escape without violent effort. Bot how much is Carnogie worth? Since he sold his steel works the income from the bonds he received In payment has amounted to $210,000, 000. Hence the laird might have spent $5.000,000 a year to maintain his frugal household and have given away $140/000,000 and still have all of his original fortune intact. FISHING. (Charlotte Observer.)
